Notes/Commercial Description:
"Our Amber is a sweet, malty, medium-bodied ale with a spicy, floral hop finish. It's brewed with 2-row Pale, Crystal and Chocolate malts. And we hop it with Mt. Hoods and Cascades. We're as proud of it today as we were back in '89. And over the years it's earned 14 Gold Medals. Not that we're keeping track or anything.

ABV 5.5% IBU 31"

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a DFH shaped pint glass.

The beer pours a clear copper color with a large foamy off white head that recedes slowly leaving behind very little lacing.

very mild aroma, lightly malty with hints of caramel and toasted bread. Just a hint of floral hops. Not much going on here

The flavor is slightly bready, with hints of caramel and just a hint of floral hops. Really, quite a mild flavor profile, Light/medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Easy to drink

Overall, this is not a bad beer, but it is not great either.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with a thick off-white, long lasting head, a lot of lacing and carbonation. Fine aroma of caramel; ripe fruit hints of hops and chocolate. Medium, creamy body. Taste is balanced between caramel malt, light earthy hops with hints of cherry and chocolate. Finish is long and bitter. Tasty session brew.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance - Nothing special, amber color as expected, average head.

Smell - Again, nothing special, just some light maltiness.

Taste - Starts malty, but come through overbearingly sweet. Almost undrinkably sweet, in my opinion.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, decent carbonation.

Overall, I really disliked this beer. It looks, smells, and feels like a solid amber ale, but the sweetness just kills it for me.
